Just in case you ever doubted the cozy relationship between liberals and mainstreatm media—-
In my last blog, NC State Board of Elections Happy Investigators for Democracy NC, I talked about the AP reporter (Michael Biesecker) who wrote the story about the State Board of Elections’ (SBOE) willingness to investigate contributions outlined in a complaint filed by Bob Hall, Democracy NC director. I wrote:
As always the liberal media refers to Bob Hall and his group as “Watchdogs.” Seeing that Michael Biesecker, one of the reporters for the AP article, was formerly a reporter for the News and Observer, he knows very well that Hall is a liberal activist, registered lobbyist and executive director of a group that was an original member of the now infamous Blueprint NC organization. You will remember that Blueprint NC was the source of a recently leaked strategy memo that exposed the game of how a coalition of liberal non-profits will “attack” elected officials in North Carolina. Hall’s work with Bartlett and the SBOE has produced a collection of some of the most liberal laws in the land.
I posted the blog and went back to work. While perusing the more than 5,000 emails Civitas acquired through a public records request to the SBOE – you may remember – all of the emails were to or from Bob Hall, I came across an email from Bob Hall informing Gary Bartlett that Biesecker had moved to the Associated Press.
Bartlett’s answer: God Bless AP
We have written a couple of articles based on the emails and in the process of finishing up a couple more. The first one was titled NC SBE Who is Really in Charge and Who Do They Work For and the second – Lobbyist Bob Hall and Gary Bartlett Planned Attack on Republican Legislature.
